Owning Institution: GLBT Historical Society

About this Collection

Selected photographs from a scrapbook of “anonymous lesbian photographs” found, according to the donor, in a “Berkeley junk shop in the early 2000s.” The photos span the mid-1940s to the early 1960s, and include snapshots of individuals, pairs, and small groups at social gatherings, in the snow, on the beach, and with cars. Many figures are donning a post-World War II butch style. Several photographs include people in Women’s Army Corps (WAC) uniforms. View this collection on the contributor's website.
